The Neverending Story.....

i'm re-reading The Neverending Story.
By the title of this blog i'm sure that its clear that i'm a fan.
As a child i dreamed of being The Childlike Empress,
and at around the age of 16 i discovered the book and a whole new adventure began.

When people ask me for a recommended read,
its always my first recommendation.

I've read about 20 pages and already i've oodles of quotes that
i've wanted to write out, i think i'm going to have to contain myself.

'I wonder, he said to himself, whats in a book while its closed. Oh, i know its full of letters printed on paper, but all the same, something must be happening, because as soon as i open it, there's a whole story with people i don't know yet and all kind of adventures and deeds and battles. And sometimes there are storms at sea, or it takes you to strange cities and countries. All those thig are somehow shut up in a book. Of course you have to read it to find out. But, its already there, thats the funny thing. i just wish i knew how it could be'
Suddenly an almost festive mood came over him.
He settled himself, picked up the book, opened it to the first page and began to read

The Neverending Story'
